add thermal cameras and you have instant detection of who is peeing in the pool... sell it!

I have installed cameras in a pool, but not for surveillance. It was an athletic rehabilitation facility.
Someone would blow out a knee, and then they would workout or do physical therapy in the pool. The joint would be less stressed, all the muscles would be worked, etc...
No cameras were installed in the water. Instead, plexiglass cutouts were factory installed in the pool liner, and we set up cameras on tripods to look through the windows. Aside from being cramped, it was a typical install.
It wasn't really intended for surveillance, but the coaches and trainers had us configure motion alarms for 'after hours' activity in the pool. No one watched it live, even when someone was doing therapy. The doctors would review it later for progress.
The picture was good, there was plenty of light, and even subjects standing 20 feet away could be seen. The water dispersed light pretty evenly throughout the pool.
One of my best clients is an apartment complex owner. He would LOVE this idea. He always wants pool cams! I'm sure you can think of his reason why ;)
We provided IP68 stainless steel housings for a swimming pool installation in a US training facility... in this case, the swimmers are future olympic athletes and their coaches monitor their strokes and skills underwater.

Who needs to watch old episodes of BayWatch?
Chesapeake & Midlantic
Is this more effective than the old fashioned way of having a lifeguard watch the surface of the pool?

I think the thought behind this is more for multiple pool facilities.
If you have 1 lifeguard watching monitors to cover 3 pools, there is a reduced cost over having to pay 3 lifeguards.

Just install the big red easy button next to the monitors...
Push the button, pools auto empty and leave the inhabitants flopping on dry ground like fish on land.
